Season 11 DVD guide

The Eleventh Season DVD was released on October 6, 2008 in the UK and October 7, 2008 in the US. The theme follows on from the last five Seasons: this box features Krusty on the cover, while the inside is styled as a theme park with obvious inspiration from recently-opened The Simpsons Ride at Universal Studios, Hollywood.

The box set caused a little unrest in the fan community due to the fact that the discs themselves are not held in the normal plastic trays; rather, they slip inside cardboard 'wallets.' While Fox's environmental concerns are certainly commendable, the design of the set is such that it is too easy to scratch the discs or get fingerprints on them when taking them out of the box, making them skip or fail to play.

The discs

The disc designs feature each of the main family in a 'House of Mirrors' gallery. The mirror part is actually a reflective surface on the discs, hence the rainbow effect in these scans.
